Here's Every Apple Watch Series 4 Collection Going Up for Pre-Order on September 14

The debut of new Apple Watch models every year brings an assortment of non-customizable collections, which bundle in one case finish (Stainless Steel or Aluminum) with one band. If you're interested in the new Apple Watch Series 4, you'll have to purchase one of these collections in order to get the advantages of the Series 4's new and bigger display, thinner size, ECG monitor, and more.

Because of this, picking a specific model can be difficult, so we've decided to take a look at every Apple Watch Series 4 option that will be up for pre-order starting September 14 at 12:01 a.m. PDT. Prices are taken from Apple.com in the United States.

Regarding the new 40mm and 44mm case sizes, Apple has slightly increased the height of the Series 4 cases and updated the size options to reflect that change. As a rule of thumb, if you've worn 38mm Apple Watches in the past, go for 40mm in Series 4, and if you've previously worn 42mm cases, then the 44mm Series 4 should fit you well. All previous generation Apple Watch bands will fit with Apple Watch Series 4.

Alongside the collections, Apple has a number of new and sold-separately Apple Watch bands up for sale. New colors for the Fall 2018 band collection include Nectarine, Blue Horizon, and Lavender for Sport Band; Cape Cod Blue, Nectarine, Hibiscus, Storm Gray, and Indigo for Sport Loop; Peony Pink, Forest Green, Cape Cod Blue, and Ruby (PRODUCT)Red for Modern Buckle; and Forest Green and Cape Cod Blue for Leather Loop.

You can also purchase the new color blocked Hermès bands individually, starting at $339 for Single Tour and $489 for Double Tour. The new Gold Milanese Loop can be purchased on its own as well, available for $149. Head to Apple.com to check out all of these new Apple Watch bands.

In terms of pre-order dates, all models of the Apple Watch Series 4 will be up for pre-order beginning at 12:01 a.m. PDT on September 14. One week later on September 21, all Series 4 models except Nike+ will launch and begin arriving to pre-order customers.

While Apple Watch Nike+ pre-orders will also take place on September 14, the models will not officially launch until Friday, October 5. According to Apple's press release, these will also face "limited availability" on that date.

On launch day, Apple Watch Series 4 (GPS) will be available in the United States, United Kingdom, Australia, Austria, Belgium, Canada, China, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Guernsey, Hong Kong, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Jersey, Luxembourg, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Portugal, Puerto Rico, Saudi Arabia, Singapore, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, the UAE, and US Virgin Islands.

One week later on September 28, the GPS model will expand to Bahrain, Croatia, Czech Republic, Greece, Guam, Hungary, Iceland, Kazakhstan, Kuwait, Macau, Monaco, Oman, Poland, Qatar, Romania, Russia, Slovakia and South Africa.

The GPS + Cellular model will be available in the U.S., UK, Australia, Canada, China, Denmark, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Italy, Japan, Singapore, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, and the UAE. Other countries will be added later this year.

MacRumors will have coverage of pre-orders for Apple Watch Series 4, iPhone XS, and iPhone XS Max as Apple.com goes live with the new devices at 12:01 a.m. PDT on September 14, so be sure to check back to our front page for all the latest details as you wait to place your orders.

Apple's really sticking it to stainless steel owners every way imaginable. For anyone with a collection of stainless steel bands, effective 2017 you were locked into also paying $100 extra for LTE whether you wanted it or not. Then, Apple raised the price another $100 this year. And to top it all off, the stainless steel models are only offered as a bundle with the bands you're most likely to already own.

For $749, I should at least get the opportunity to BTO my watch to include one of the new colored sports bands instead of paying twice for the white one I already own.

As opposed to the rule of thumb where if you wore 42 you go down to 40, and if you wore 38 you go up to 44? Hopefully you guys didn't lose a lot of sleep last night calculating that rule of thumb.

I dislike the fact that I cannot purchase a SS version without LTE.

Sticking it? If you think it's too expensive or you can't afford it, then don't buy it. The US Constitution doesn't guarantee an Apple Watch of your choice at the price you name. No one is sticking you with anything.

There are watches in this world that sell for hundreds of thousands of dollars simply because of who makes them or what they are made of. Any Apple Watch for under $1,000 is a bargain in comparison.

I seriously own 3 white sport bands at this point, since that's the cheapest entry point into SS. I really, really wish I could just buy the actual Apple Watch S4 itself, without a band.

It makes you wonder if Apple created the bezels on the prior design on purpose so that they could release the Apple Watch 4 without the bezels.
Yes. It was a clever plan to release a watch with bezels so that three and a half years later they could announce ones without.

For the same reason, they didn't release the original Apple Watch with blood pressure monitoring, a unicorn tear dispenser, and the ability to levitate.
